talking about the show. [laughter] rob: let's talk about that. heather: we will, welcome to "fox & friends first" i'm heather childers. rob: and i'm rob schmit. here comes the health care push. heather: commander in chief warning of major reper cautions if they can't get the job done. good morning, griff. >> good morning, heather and rob, here we go again, the message quite clear from president trump, get it done or else, here is the warning he issued on twitter yesterday saying that, oops, sorry there, hold on one second. if republicans don't repeal and replace obamacare, the
repecusions will be far greater than they understand. senate majority leader mitch mcconnell to hold meeting but not what bill they will be voting on, repeal or replace or a new bill. one of the conservatives holds doubts. >> they will present us with either partial repeal or senate leadership plan which does not repeal obamacare but a pork fest full of all kinds of government programs and government spend spending. they are throwing everything and the kitchen sink. >> repeal and replace. i hope it's repeal and replace, you can't have a debate about
either unless we get on the bill. we need a yes vote in order to change the status quo. >> senator mccain not back in washington, the margins means that the gop can lose one vote. the president is meeting with victims of obamacare where we expect a comment he will be with vice president pence, guys. rob: we do expect a comment. the president's statement comes this big push for repeal and replace comes as incoming communications director lays out a new vision for his department. anthony scaramucci promising to reset the culture and more importantly stop the leaks. >> if the leaks don't stop, i'm going pair down the staff because it's just not right, chris. it's not fair to the president or fair to america and people in the government but something is going on inside the white house that the president does not like and we are going to fix it. i would like to reset the
culture inside the comms department so people recognize that i'm actually there receiver them. >> anthony scaramucci will travel with the president this week. president heading to west virginia for the national boy scout. heather: well that brings us to look at who is talking, former speaker of the house says that anthony scaramucci is the right person to lead the communications department because of his business backgrounds. >> scaramucci is very smart and very clever. i think he will be a fighter but not hostile and direct with the press and very tough in taking on things on false allegations or if things are inaccurate. if you're going to be one of the persons to be a shield, you better have ton of energy, things he knows so well that he would be able to, i think,
dominate the news media and those kind of topics. heather: that's a spin from what we were hearing back on friday. we were hearing that he didn't have the experience in the political arena with all of the big issues but i think newt grin glitch is right there. that would be a plus for him. rob: yeah, i thought he handled the first press conference pretty well. i liked hearing him talk. i'm sad that he's not doing the daily briefing because he has a no-nonsense kind of attitude and job doer and i think the president loves that. heather: the media needs to learn, mainstream media that he has the certain sense of humor. rob: in a few hours jared kushner will meet with senior
advisory committee. ahead of the meeting, the president tweeting as the phoney russian witch hunt continues two groups are laughing for a lost election taking hold, democrats and russians. donald trump, jr. and former campaign manager paul manafort will give private testimony later this week. heather: today democrats, they are going rebrand their party in an effort to spin things around back in their favor. rob: yeah, that's their big -- the measure here, i guess, a better deal. a better deal, better jobs, better wages, better future. we talked last week about how that might be a knock-off of the papa john slogan and stealing the president's basic theme and we have to somehow bring them back up so they can afford to have a decent life with the
middle class average job. heather: would you want to make america great again or would you want to be better. i would rather be great than better? rob: yeah. they can't use that. that one is already taken. heather: exactly. you would think they would try to do something above grade. rob: they didn't have a good message in 2016 and let's look at a poll from abc news and washington post on what the democratic party stands for and a poll of an array of people, 54% of people stand against president trump, only 35% think an entire political party in the country stands for something. that's really scary when you don't stand for something. you're just negative, that's not going win. heather: we will see if action follows the logo. people don't think they stand anything, having a good logo or think it's a good logo if you
don't have action behind it. rob: absolutely. heather: fox news for you, investigation now underway after grizzly discovery, at least nine illegal immigrants dead crammed inside a truck in what appeared to be a human smuggling attempt gone wrong. horrible story. kelly wright joining us. >> so far one man has been arrested and it's unclear whether bradley is the driver but will be in federal court as the investigation intensifies to find others who may have been involved in horrible crime of human trafficking, during emotional vigil for the victims, one community adviser says no human has to die in search for a better life. several minors among the nine people who died from heat-related issues inside the tractor trailer in san antonio, texas, 17 people rescued from the trailer are considered to be

that they better get it done taking twitter issuing this warning. if republicans don't repeal and replace, the disastrous obamacare, the repercussions will be far greater than any of them understand. now, senate majority leader plans to put a bill on the senate floor for a vote at some point this week first opening with just a debate on it but the problem is that no one knows exactly what bill they'll be voting on, a repeal only or repeal and replace, one of the moderate holdouts that opposes strict repeal, senator susan collins had this to say. >> we don't know whether we are going to be voting on the house bill, the first version of the senate bill, the second version of the senate bill, a new version of the senate bill that would repeal affordable care act. i don't think that's a good approach to facing legislation that effects millions of people. >> but when asked if they fill again, does that signal the end
of the seven-year quest to repeal and replace. here is what senator john thune had to say. >> it's not. it's a vote for the status quo, but what will happen if and when that were to occur, whether he go back to drawing board and get a bill up. we
will vote to repeal and replace obamacare. the question is now a question of if, it's a question of when. adding to the difficulty here with senator john mccain the margin of error means that the gop can only lose one vote now. the president is meeting with victims of obamacare this afternoon at the white house with vice president pence, we will see what he has to see as the pressure mounds to get things done. earth health get her done. thank you, griff. the communications director lays out and more importantly stop the leaks.
>> if the leaks don't stop, i'm going pair down the staff because it's just not right, chris, i think it's not fair to the president, it's actually not fair to america or the people in the government. but something is going on inside the white house that the president does not like and we are going fix it. i would like to reset the culture inside the comms department so people recognize that i'm actually there to receiver them. heather: anthony scaramucci will travel with president trump this week using the opportunity to focus the message and president trump heads to virginia for national boy scout. rob: in a few hours jared kushner will meet with the committee, he faces questions about his relationships with russian officials. ahead of the meeting president tweeting as the phoney russian witch hunt continues, two groups are laughing at this excuse for a lost election taking hold, democrats and russians.

heather: kid rock announced possible senate run and if he follows he will go through against this woman right now debbie. i think he will win. rob: you're up against the old-boring politician, exciting celebrity, people vote. heather: backer of trump, president trump, i shall say. rob: terrible monday in new york, janice. janice: feel like a monday. make sure you bring umbrella. whether he see delays in the northeast, if you're traveling, just be aware, 69 in new york city, cooler temperatures across the northeast and great lakes, look at that, 60's on the map even towards the southeast because we have the frontal system past six hours, all of that moisture centered in up towards new england. we will see the potential for flash flooding, unfortunately

this to turn the party around. let's ask former ohio senator capri. thanks for joining us this morning. your reaction to this new slogan? >> well, two things, number one and i've seen this on twitter so i'm not alone in this, it sounds like it's a papa johns ad. that may work to get a pizza delivery. heather: better ingredients, better pizza, something like that. >> slogans do not win elections, okay. what wins elections are ideas, action and an actual clear message for american people. so we need to not focus on short-term slogans, we need to actually reflect upon who we are as democrats, focus on an economic message, look, for example, to a 50-state strategy.
heather: redistricting. >> exactly, redistricting. heather: on the point on not having a message, you're right, abc washington post poll on what the democrat party stands for and they tend to agree with you, 54% say the party is just against trump. 35% voted that it stands for something. they have a problem with their message to go begin with. >> we do. we have problem with leadership as well. i home from ohio, democrats voted for donald trump because he had an economic message. when you look at the democratic party led by nancy pelosi from california, chuck schumer from the state of new york, we are missing, you know, the realities of middle america, rural america. heather: right. >> that's where we need to focus, so i would say let's step up as the adult in the room and
govern. heather: on the point since you brought up the economy, this is a sound bite from him in reference to what the democratic party needs to do moving forward and has to do with the economy, listen to what he had to say. >> we are going race peoples' wages and create better-paying jobs and cut down on everyday expenses they have to pay and give them the tools they need to compete in the 21st century so simply put what democrats stand for, a better deal for working families, higher wages, less costs. heather: can they follow through, capri? >> that's a lovely sound bite but where are the policy proposals? we need to step up and go beyond the slogans and show policy proposals and follow through incrementally from the local levels to the state level and federal level in coordinated effort, we do stand for those things but we have to execute
them and have action and we have to have a cohesive message that really works and can deliver. that also means working with republicans. heather: less elitism as well. all right, thank you so much, capri. i appreciate you joining us. rob. rob: all right, ladies, thanks so much. 55 minutes after the hour now and this is a great story coming up here. the search for a cell phone ends up with one guy falling down a trash shoot. you are going to love it. stay tune. i'll never find a safe used car. start at the new carfax.com show me minivans with no reported accidents. boom. love it.
